You cannot smoke on the street, or at least we would not recommend this.
Law Enforcement: The cops around here LIVE to bust people for DUI and weed. If you’re a young’un driving at night, they’ll frequently follow you and sometimes pull you over for things like “you have a license plate light out”, then ask to search your car. Just be calm, polite, and know your rights (you don’t have to submit to a search). Do NOT smoke on the street and definitely not in any public areas (parks, etc.), but smoking in a car (as long as it’s moving), house, or backyard is fine. Also, don’t leave anything in plain view.
Where to buy Marijuana in Northbrook, IL.: Due to the law enforcement in Northbrook, no one’s going to offer any to strangers flat out. The dealers like to keep their names out of it because law enforcement is harsh. Look for skaters and other counterculture types, and work something into the conversation. Most even if they don’t smoke themselves, know someone who does or a dealer. They hate the cops in this town too, so they won’t turn you in for asking.
Marijuana prices: It’s damn near impossible to find anything but the best, however it’s priced that way too.
1/8: $60, $50 if you know someone (don’t ever pay more than $60 an 1/8 for bud. Occasionally you’ll meet someone here that tries to play businessman)
Basically for anything larger than an eighth or quad, you either have to know someone or go somewhere else. Most dealers here are too paranoid (for a good reason) to sell larger amounts to a first time customer.
Marijuana brands: Mostly hydro, skunk red hair. Sometimes you can get BC Beasters for $50. Don’t trust any brands that people tell you like “Maui Wowie”.
